If Voting Changed Anything, it Would be Illegal
Thank you, Mark Twain
We are on the brink of what Fox News tells us will be a historic “Red Wave” of shocking Republican victories in the midterm elections. Joe Biden, on the other hand, warns that not accepting the results of a “free and fair” election is a “threat to democracy.” He also says we won’t know the results until a few days after the election.
So, let’s see; if a “Red Wave” really is imminent, why would Biden and his sycophants in the state controlled media be preaching so much about “MAGA Republicans” accepting the results of the upcoming election? Would they be saying that if they thought the Republicans were going to sweep to a huge win? They certainly don’t seem to be running scared. And all those late-arriving, undated mail-in ballots with unverified signatures don’t bode well for Republicans. As Biden advises us, it will take a few days to get the desired results. That’s how it works in America 2.0.

Recall that there are an untold number of American citizens still behind bars, almost two years later, after exercising their constitutional right of protest, over the 2020 election. The fraud was about as clear and obvious as it gets, with late-night arrivals of boxes of ballots, videos of poll workers purposefully blocking checkers from observing the ballot counting, over a thousand sworn affidavits from poll workers and post office employees, testifying to massive wrongdoing. And yet the courts, including our beloved “conservative” Supreme Court, refused to even hear the evidence.
So exactly what has changed since 2020, to restore trust in the electoral process? Why would Republicans be so enthusiastic about taking back Congress, given that not a single election official was scrutinized, let alone punished, for the shenanigans in the last election? There will be even more unverified and dubious mail-in ballots, arriving well after election night. There will be more examples of people being allowed to vote without having to present any ID. IDs are “racist” in America 2.0. And the easily manipulated electronic voting machines are still there.
But it certainly didn’t start with the 2020 election, as many die-hard Republicans seem to believe. And you can bet, if they do allow a “Red Wave” tomorrow (and yes, it will be under their control- elections are far too important to be left to chance), that Republicans will accept those results as “free and fair.” Democrats, conversely, will be besides themselves over the results, and will be the ones crying foul. They’ll probably focus on unspecific “voter suppression,” and attribute it all to “racism,” but they’ll dispute things as heartily as the Republicans did in 2020. No one will quote Lenin’s comment that it’s not important who votes, but who counts the votes.
In the 1864 presidential election, the secular saint of our corrupt society, Abraham Lincoln, deigned to permit the people to vote him out of office. Now, he did everything he could to stop them from doing that, of course, but to the court historians, he is incomprehensibly magnificent because he could have simply cancelled the elections, they tell us. After all, he shattered every other legal aspect of constitutional government. Pre-election polls, the same kind that show a “Red Wave” coming tomorrow, had Lincoln losing to George McClellan. After all, what was he going to run on? Suspending the writ of habeas corpus? 800,000 senseless deaths?
We know now, thanks to the research of Thomas DiLorenzo and others, that Lincoln ordered his generals not to furlough Union soldiers who were suspected Democratic Party voters. An illuminating letter from General Benjamin “Beast” Butler, to bloodthirsty Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, boasted that “I have done all I could to prevent secessionists from voting.” Even high profile court historian and Lincoln cult devotee David Herbert Donald admitted that “Under the protection of federal bayonets, New York went Republican by seven thousand votes.” New York was a hotbed of anti-Lincoln sentiment. That is the only way it could have gone Republican.
Then there was the 1876 electoral fiasco. Democrat Samuel J. Tilden was absolutely robbed of his “free and fair” election to the White House. Tilden won the popular vote, and was ahead in the electoral college. Without the required amount of electoral votes, the election was swung to the House of Representatives, where a Republican- majority committee gave all the states in question to Republican Rutherford B. Hayes. As a huge concession to this overt fraud, the Republicans agreed to finally end the brutal Reconstruction in the southern states. Full disclosure; one of my father’s cousins later married Rutherford B. Hayes III. They don’t invite me over, though.
In the 1948 U.S. Senate race in Texas, the corrupt stars aligned for future President Lyndon B. Johnson. After several recounts, LBJ was simply declared the winner by eighty seven votes, earning him the derisive nickname “Landslide Lyndon.” The final ruling came from former KKK member Hugo Black, who transformed into a “liberal” Supreme Court justice. LBJ’s aides would tell of walking through a cemetery, while their boss urged them to write down the names on the tombstones. When they questioned this, LBJ is supposed to have declared, “They have as much right to vote as anybody else.” The dead have been voting ever since.
The Democrats were rightfully upset about the controversial 2000 election, where Al Gore won the popular vote, but George W. Bush was eventually declared the winner by the Supreme Court. Americans first heard the term “hanging chads.” The 2004 election was very similar, as Bush again lost the popular vote, and won the Electoral vote under highly suspicious circumstances. John Kerry didn’t protest as much as Gore. But then again, he and Dubya were both brothers in the elite Skull and Bones society at Yale.
In my book Hidden History, I detailed how the late Collier brothers exposed modern vote fraud in their classic Votescam. At one point, the brothers confronted the guy who was supposedly in charge of the computer projections on election night, and he uttered the conspiratorial chestnut, “You’ll never prove a thing.” When the Colliers videotaped League of Women voters tampering with ballots, then Dade County State Attorney Janet Reno retaliated against them, instead of investigating the fraud. What else would you expect from the woman who would oversee the murders at Waco?
I also wrote about Victoria Collier, the daughter of one of the Colliers, who was seemingly continuing their exposure of electoral fraud. She was my friend on Facebook, but became incensed at me for using the Spotlight as a source in Hidden History. I really hadn’t given her religion any thought, but evidently she is a very sensitive Jew, and considered the newspaper to be “anti-Semitic.” As I pointed out to her, the Spotlight was the only publication to write about her father’s work, and first published Votescam as a series. How could I not mention them?
After a nasty exchange of emails, Victoria deleted me as a friend from Facebook. Later, I checked her account, and sure enough, she was posting predictable diatribes against Trump, and pontificating that there was “no fraud” in the 2020 election. If you read what I wrote about her own good work initially in this area, you will understand just how powerful Trump Derangement Syndrome is. It was almost as disappointing as finding out Gary Oldman, who was so convincing as Lee Harvey Oswald in Oliver Stone’s JFK, now inexplicably believes that Oswald was the lone assassin.
After the 2016 election, the Democrats not only bought into the world’s most ridiculous conspiracy theory- “Russiagate,” they also chanted, “#Not my President!” The Russian “collusion” theory is documented as having been cooked up by Hillary Clinton herself, according to a memo written by then CIA director John Brennan. Yet these same “election deniers” would proclaim the 2020 election the “most secure” election ever. The Democrats lost all credibility when they started calling Trump “Putin’s Puppet,” and still maintain, despite the lack of any evidence, that “Russia” conspired with Donald Trump to rob us of the glory of a President Hillary Clinton.
The jig was up last time, when days before the 2020 election, the Pennsylvania governor just issued a decree, kind of like the “mandates” we have all grown to know and love in the COVID world, that declared all mail-in ballots without dates would assume to have been mailed before the election. Needless to say, this opened the door to massive fraud. Trump actually did something, appealing to the Supreme Court. His latest gem of an appointee, Amy Coney Barrett, recused herself, allowing the appeal to be denied. Such is the stuff of the Trumpian legend.
Then, on January 6, 2021, as many as a million protesters assembled in Washington, D.C., at the behest of Donald Trump, who gave them a typical rally speech, full of empty rhetoric and braggodocio. He didn’t “incite” violence, urging them to march “peacefully” to the U.S. Capitol. He did promise to march with them, but like pretty much every other promise he made during his 2016 campaign, he broke it. As soon as the furor arose about an “insurrection,” Trump threw his supporters under the bus in “warp speed” fashion, and urged them to “go home.”
We know what happened that day, or as much as we can know, given that some 14,000 hours of film documenting the “insurrection,” remain unavailable to the public. The state controlled media erupted in an avalanche of lies. The protesters killed no one. Officer Brian Sicknick wasn’t hit in the head with a fire extinguisher. Ashli Babbitt was unarmed, and was shot and killed by Lt. Michael Byrd, who had been reckless enough in the past to leave his loaded gun in the Capitol restroom. Nothing happened to Byrd, and Babbitt was smeared as a “terrorist.”
What video is available shows police officers waving demonstrators into the Capitol. Only a handful of them were violent at all, and odds are they were probably undercover government assets, who are in key positions at all riots and protests. Another woman, Rosanne Boyland, was beaten to death by another unpunished police officer. Those arrested and still incarcerated have been denied all due process, and allege they have been beaten and kept in solitary confinement. Meanwhile, violent street criminals across the country routinely now are released without bail.
And then the Congress decided to form a ridiculous January 6 Commission to “investigate” the “insurrection.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi denied even token Republican opposition on the uber-partisan panel. There was no “other side” explored in these Soviet-style show hearings. And no civil libertarian asked how anyone smeared as an “insurrectionist,” and prosecuted on national television, could possibly ever get a fair trial in any jurisdiction.
Social media platforms banned all inferences of 2020 electoral fraud as “misinformation.” To question it at all was to be labeled a “denier,” at best, and a “domestic terrorist” at worst. Considering those remaining unjustly in prison, and all those still being hunted down and prosecuted, it is probably incredibly unlikely that masses of people will ever protest the vote again. The authorities have revealed what will happen if you do. That’s the way our “democracy” works.
So it is amid this Orwellian backdrop that we anticipate the 2022 midterm elections. Now, historically, the party out of the White House typically gains seats, in what the talking heads tell us is a “correction.” The confident Republicans apparently believe that the corruption we saw in 2020, which has only been exacerbated since then by the increasingly insane “Woke” Democrats, will someone be missing this time. This time they’ll actually count the votes honestly. The electronic voting machines won’t have their curious “glitches,” which result in wild vote swings.
If anything, there will be even more mail-in ballots, an unknown number of which will be undated and unverified. More illegal immigrants than ever will be voting. As I’ve asked many times, if noncitizens are allowed to vote in our elections, then just what is the advantage of being a U.S. citizen? Can you imagine visiting Italy during the elections, and being allowed to vote? Can you picture that happening in any other country in the world? The most corrupt Latin American tin pot dictator never ran an electoral system as criminal as ours.
Leaving aside the transparent fraud, just what issues are the Democrats running on? Record setting inflation? Their wholehearted support of World War 3, including the use of nuclear weapons? Sending billions to Ukraine? The cancel culture? Their opposition to free speech? Getting rid of “racist” highways? Fifty seven genders? Allowing minors to consent to “gender reassignment surgery” without parental approval? Opposition to parents questioning their child’s school curriculum? The personal magnetism of candidates like John Fetterman or Gretchen Whitmer?
But if the Democrats have nothing but utter failure to defend, what are the Republicans running on? Well, one would think they would be focusing on that horrific inflation, the support for World War 3, the Russian embargo which appears to be triggering a potentially devastating fuel shortage, the lunacy of “family friendly” drag queen strip shows and transgender story hour, critical race theory and the poisonous anti-White agenda that permeates everything in our crumbling society, and the wide open borders that are literally changing voter demographics against them.
But I don’t hear many Republicans talking about these things. Oh, sure, they’ll mention inflation and blame pathetic Joe Biden for it. But do they criticize the unconstitutional show trial hearings of the January 6 political prisoners? Are they talking about the FBI raiding homes of nonviolent protesters, and the injustice system giving them cruel and unusual lengthy prison sentences? Are they talking about the deadly vaccine? They’re not going to talk about World War 3, because most of them support it, too. Instead, they’ll just babble about a “strong defense,” and lobby for more corporate tax cuts. They don’t call them the Stupid Party for nothing.
In an honest, “free and fair” election, the party in power- the Democrats- would be soundly thrashed, and would be lucky to have any members left in Congress. As bad as even RINOs are, they aren’t absolutely insane, as most Democrats have become in the wake of Trump and the Great Plandemic. But we know that this won’t be a “free and fair” election. In this country, candidates are selected, not elected. That’s the way it’s pretty much always been. And that’s why nothing ever changes. Each “opposing” party just runs against the always terrible record of those in office.
I don’t make predictions. I suspect they’ll throw the Republicans a bone and let them take back either the House or the Senate. They may want to keep the two-party duopoly charade going. I think it’s highly unlikely a “Red Wave” occurs, but it’s not impossible. Maybe they want that to happen, to increase the divisiveness. If so, at least CNN and MSNBC would become “must watch TV” for a day or two. But that’s the best we can hope for. Being entertained, like watching a WWE match.
So don’t hold me to any of this. Maybe Dr. Oz, Herschel Walker, and other Republicans will restore the greatness of America. I think that flies in the face of all the evidence, but I never saw Trump getting elected in 2016 either, so who knows? The electoral system is utterly rigged and corrupt, and there is no reason for anyone to trust it. The only prediction we can make with great accuracy, is that whatever happens, it will not benefit the American people.
